HEKS Bridge Builders - Empowering Parents, Nurturing Children; Easing of Covid Measures

Broadcast on: 
29 June, 2021

HEKS "BrückenbauerInnen (Bridge builders)" are a team of specialists trained in the intercultural sector. They themselves have experienced migration and are familiar with all the issues that may arise when you move to a new country with children. Parents with children up to the end of primary school age are assisted by intercultural mediators in understanding the local education and health care systems, in getting to know and making use of schemes for pre-schoolers and school-age children and in accompanying their children as best they can in their development process. They adapt their services to your needs.

If you are interested in receiving this kind of support, call or write an email. All their information is on their website. They will then get in touch with you. Their services are available free of charge in eleven languages. HEKS's Ana Senn joined us in the studio to give us more details. Listen to the interview here.
